The best place in life to be, is where you have nothing to prove to anyone but yourself. —Treka L. House
Treka L. House is the mother of two adorable children. When she's not busy working and writing; she’s spending time with the ones she loves, laughing contagiously and being a motivator for whoever needs it. Nothing is more important to her than family, friends and good energy. She's also a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
Her motto is: Be of purpose. Be of service.
Books have always been a positive force in her life. She just never imagined writing one. Treka’s love for writing stemmed from her love for reading. When she was a little girl, her mother ordered her the collection of Disney books, which she would often read over and over, just to take that adventure again and again. When she became of school age, the school library was her favorite part of school, which prompted her father to introduce her to the endless stories that waited for her in the public library. She now shares that tradition with her own children. It wasn’t until high school when she realized that she had a talent for writing. Treka's college professors and friend's encouraging compliments about her writing, set off the light bulb that writing may be an option. Not only was she a gifted writer, but the early childhood years of reading, sharpened her imagination. She then found herself becoming just as lost in writing, as she did reading. Writing became restorative and exciting for her. She knew then, writing was no longer just an option, it was her true passion.
Breaking Point is her debut as an author. It's a fictional piece written to feel realistic and meant to capture the attention of her readers. Treka’s goal was to touch on everyday issues. Her desire was to write something entertaining; yet purposeful and genuine, something she successfully accomplished. Treka L. House is an author with therapeutic capabilities, yearning to free her readers through her charming, relatable words. There is more to come from this author, so stay tuned.
Here are a few self-confessed intimate details about Treka: I adore my children’s skin against mine, it’s a reminder of God’s love for me. I feel that my compassion is a gift meant to be shared with the world. I value quality over quantity, and time over things. Words invade my thoughts, often waking me from a deep sleep and requiring me to get up and write. I love the sound of the ocean and the feeling of sand between my toes, it’s quite calming. I believe that everything happens for a reason, even if it hurts. Smiles take my breath away. Laughter is what I crave often, and believe it or not, I’m quite funny. The moonlight feels like love, the stars feel like hope and the sun feels like promise. I could watch a good movie everyday. The Hallmark Channel is my favorite, because it encourages optimism and brightens a dreary day. I select nail polish as a daily mood booster. I’m simple, and I’m the happiest when I’m home, near water or with my family. I self-reflect often and I no longer expect perfection from myself or others; but I do require consistency. I try to live everyday expecting the best, because I’m constantly reminded that there has never been anything that I’ve wanted, that God hasn't provided.
